Instagram meet @ethanlax24 - Ethan has been a Type 1 Diabetic (T1D) for most of his life, just like me, he uses an insulin pump coupled with a glucose sensor (pictured) to regulate his blood sugar levels, just like me, Ethan is also a lacrosse player, just like me. • I met Ethan at the Rabil Overnight Camp in November and watched him dominate on and off the lacrosse field that weekend. Ethan managed his diabetes independently and away from his family for the course of the event with no hiccups. He leads an active and healthy lifestyle without limitations or restrictions. Ethan doesn’t let diabetes dictate how he lives his life and the challenges he has endured through his childhood have made him resilient and mature beyond his years. • Ethan is not defined by his diabetes nor does he allow it to hold him back. He has learned to “play the cards he was dealt” and not make excuses for things he can’t control... @ethanlax24 I want to be JUST LIKE YOU! • #diabetes #diabetic #diabetesawareness #diabetestype1 #t1d
The bravery in these two is inspiring. Today we went to a saline trial for the T-Slim insulin pump per the recommendation of our endocrinologist. Change is not easy. We have been loyal OmniPod users for most of the girls’ lives. But they faced the experience with grace and an open mind. As their mom, I couldn’t be prouder. 😍 #showmeyourpump
